It’s been a little while since I posted, and here’s why – I’ve been starting a new website called Management For Engineers.
I originally started knocking together material for this towards the end of last year. As we progress and get more responsibility, engineers often go into management. At the same time, we have been trained with a set of skills that make us great at dealing with some things, like logic and measures, while not as good at understanding other things like, well, what managers do all day.
I hope that the site will encourage engineers to think more deeply about management, and see it as a fun challenge rather than a pain in the ass.
